Subject: Banana plantation, Mayan stelae at Quirigua, Guatemala City
The expedition arrives by boat at what appears to be the east coast of Guatemala, where they visit a banana plantation. They then show the massive Mayan stelae at Quirigua, including some wonderful detail shots of some glyphs along the side of one. Then it is off by train to Guatemala City and city scenes.
